These beautiful moths always remind me of my childhood. In the summer when we used to walk to the beach they used to be all around, on the coast. On my last visit to Cornwall this year I was able to get some photos of them one evening when we were exploring the coast path.
This is the Six-spot Burnet Zygaena filipendulae and it will forever be something I will associate with summer evenings by the sea. They are seen from June through August and their host plant is Birds-foot Trefoil Lotus corniculatus.
